Through a partnership between Creative Okanagan and the Salmon Arm Roots & Blues Festival emerging musicians form the Okanagan and Shuswap/North Thompson have are invited to submit for the second annual Inside the Festival artist development opportunity! The Salmon Arm Roots & Blues Festival, which takes place August 16 – 19th, 2018, is reaching out to Okanagan and Shuswap/North Thompson musicians to support their development through a partnership with Creative Okanagan Artist and Event Development Society.
This is the second time running the program after great success with the inaugural program in 2017. The selected artists for the inaugural year of the program was Tiger Moon, a duo comprised of Dan Tait and Kasey Graff based out of Kelowna. “The program helped Tiger Moon widen their fan base, learn about the inner workings of playing a large festival and grow their network in the Okanagan music community,” says Karma Lacoff, Executive and Creative Director of Creative Okanagan.
The Inside the Festival program application can be found HERE and will be open until Thursday, June 6 at noon.
